Centre to states : Follow Tamilnadu, Kerala model for religious quota

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on February 1, 2010

You and I are easily distracted by the Padma Awards, the Glaciergate, rising prices, Sharad Pawars antics, whether sending troops to Afghanistan is prudent. The Indian political machine is not. They know fully well that the above do not matter. Just free agent chatter.

Their single track agenda is managing the adhoc benefits regime on one side and carrying along the corrupt entrenched interests on another.

The Centre has asked all states to follow Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh to provide increased quotas for minorities under the OBC ambit. The move comes on Wednesday after the Centre found it tough to push through a quota for Muslims in educational institutes and government jobs on the lines of a model recommended by the Ranganath Misra Committee report.

Why can’t I have what you just gave him ?

The funny thing about justice is : The easier the question – the harder the answer.

We can’t come out of third world status nor build spanking new cities (as suggested by a blogger) – until this fundamental anomaly is corrected first. To eat chocolate must open wrapper.
